Truly Amazing !

Somewhere last year, the owl’s were leading a riot. Everyone “WAS” crazy about them ! Me ? I still am crazy about them ! They are just so adorable. Perched up on a branch looking down sheepishly at the rest of us, having thoughts and opinions about the whole world ! No wonder so many disney productions portray them as the “Wisdom birds”.

There is another sketch challenge at  krista-kris-challenges: with a similar sketch as my previous sketch from :  Priscilla styles.

Since I loved this entire triangular division look, so much, I decided to make another one in similar design with different images and embellishments.

The pattern papers are new from my “guilt trip” shopping spree. The flowers are also from a new buy. The tiny green flower is diecut with a button over it. There are four glittering brads to go with it.

Imagine, what mom doesnt have her heart all melted up when she receives a card like this ??

Truly amazing !! I like it 🙂

Make Your Happiness !

This next card is something I made purely from experimentation.  Have had this stamp for so long. The image is so versatile. You can use it for male oriented cards, for the elderly , for formal cards like in the office, sympathy cards. It is only limited by our own imagination.

This card is inspired by the challenge over at Little Red Wagon  : to made a single layer card. Instead of using water paints or acrylics which I would generally, I opted for sponging pigments. I wanted to keep it as simple and clean so I have not overwhelmed the image or the background.

 A very inspirational sentiment. ” Make your own happiness ” which again can be interpreted into several thoughts.

I came up with a couple :

Today is precious, Make your own happiness today.

Dont wait for anyone to make it happen, make your own happiness.

Find happiness everywhere in everything …

and ofcourse I’m sure there are many more….. If you do come up with any, please enlighten me too.

No One Like You.

When I began with the concept of this card, it was really supposed to be something for a friend, perhaps could be used for valentines or just a special reminder to a good friend, neighbour, classmate … but turns out, it could also stand for a mother/daughter card too.

The elephant image is digital stamp and Ohhhh I just love those two cuties, arent they adorable ??  Ofcourse the pattern papers are from my new “guilt trip” buys. There’s some lace sticker, a cutie tag and a few fabric flowers with buttons over them. Doesnt green and pink, just appeal to the eye ? I found them so attractive but not ideal for the male cards. I made a deliberate effort at placing a black and white ribbon dividing the background papers. Just wanted to experiment the look ! 

This card enters several challenges which I have mentioned just after the picture slideshow.
